Rhodonite (doubly terminated crystal included by Galena)
stock #13.1-314
Broken Hill, Yancowinna County
New South Wales, Australia
4.6 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $450
Spring 2014

An intense red crystal 3 CM across sits on a matrix of Galena. Well exposed, typically rounded and crude but with distinct form with many areas of transparency. The front side displays well with no noticeable damage, there is cleaving on the backside that is not visible. The galena forms some selective coatings and inclusions as is usual for the locality, this adds a nice contrast. Better in person, a good example from this classic locale, likely mined over 60 years ago. Now quite rare or expensive on the market.
